2021 Domaine de Ferrand Chateauneuf fu Pape

Excellent new vintage!
2021 Domaine de Ferrand Chateauneuf fu Pape....$49.99
Lots of seductive floral and fruit aromas of stewed strawberries, dried lavender, and torched rosemary followed by wild bush and terra-cotta. A medium-bodied wine with silky fine-grained tannins. Bright acidity backbone gives delightful freshness and crunchiness to the mid-palate and finish. Beautiful concentration and focus throughout with layered spices. Drinkable now but it will develop gracefully with age

Wonderful New Non-Alcoholic Spirit

 Perhaps the best NA Spirit we've tried so far!

The Pathfinder Hemp and Root Non-Alcoholic Spirit...$30.99

A Hemp-Based Non-Alcoholic Spirit with Pioneering Complexity and Character

The Pathfinder Hemp & Root is a fermented and distilled liquid with the intense flavor and aromatic characteristics of a spirit, with none of the harmful effects of alcoholic beverages.

Smells like a spirit. Tastes like a spirit. Mixes like a spirit. <0.5% ABV.

Enjoy the thrill of throwing back a dram of the world's finest non-alcoholic spirit, with none of the headaches.

Fits right into your favorite cocktail bar as well as your home bar cart.

What's in it?

The Pathfinder is fermented from hemp and carefully refined by copper pot distillation. It's then blended with an alchemy of wormwood, angelic root, ginger, sage, juniper, saffron, orange peel, wild-crafted Douglas-fir and natural terpenes to yield this revolutionary spirit of both complexity and character.

What does it Taste Like?

The Pathfinder tastes like an amaro, that fine class of European liquors known for bittersweet flavors rounded out by citrus and spice, and can be used as a flavorful substitute for amaro, whiskey, or vermouth.

What happens when I drink it?

This miraculous elixir, like the hemp plant itself, has no pyschoactive effects, yet contains enough vitamin E, antioxidants, and other nutrients, to go favorably hand-in-hand with a balanced diet. And since there's no alcohol in The Pathfinder, it won't give you a hangover, either.

How to drink it?

In drinks, it's recommend Hemp & Root in a signature spritz recipe, but it can also be taken as a shot, sipped neat, served on the rocks, or used to modify a multitude of classic cocktails. In other words, it fits right into your home bar cart.

The Pathfinder Signature Spritz 
2 oz The Pathfinder Hemp & Root Spirit
½ oz lemon juice
Top with seltzer
Lemon slice garnish
Serve over ice in a Collins glass

Stone Ledge Tasting at Kirkwood today


Come taste Stowloch Whiskey and InverXion Vodka with Tony from Stone Ledge Spirits Friday 3/8 from 4-6pm at the Kirkwood Location!! 

Both made in Missouri!!

Stone Ledge Spirits Stowloch Whiskey...$47.99/btl
50% ABV
Inspired by the art of traditional distilling and the beauty of America's Ozark Highlands, Stowloch™ Whiskey is distilled using natural, limestone-filtered Ozark Highlands water, long fermentation, and aged a minimum of 4 years in Missouri Oak barrels. Stowloc is made using an imported recipe brought to the Americas by our distiller's family in 1761. We use only heirloom, non-GMO grain and long fermentation to give this Ozark Highlands whiskey a pre-prohibition style that is sure to satisfy any palate. Our mash build is corn, wheat and malted barley, and since we use no rye in our mash you will find a hint of sweet in every sip.
This sustainable, all-natural whiskey captures the essence of the 200-year history of Ozark Highlands distilling and is sure to become one of your favorite drams.
The name Stowloch is the combination of the Anglo-Saxon word for holy place – “Stow” – and the Irish Gaelic word for lake – “Loch.” We take the liberty of translating it “Holy Water.”

Mark Sutherland is the CEO of Stone Ledge Spirits Company, the organization behind Stowloch Whiskey. Originally from Scotland, he has been in Missouri for 30+ years and is a passionate advocate for the Ozark Highlands and Missouri’s beverage industries. He is also a part time British diplomat, serving as His Majesty’s Hon. Consul to Missouri. Distilling has been part of the 200 year history of the Ozark Highlands. And Stowloch Whiskey is proud to be a part of the next chapter.

InverXion Vodka...$19.99/btl
Our Inspiration
We are inspired by the adventurers and innovators in the world. Our name is a tribute to our distilling process, and to those who redefine what is possible and push the edge in everything they do.
Because we believe adventure favors the bold™.
Our Delicious Vodka
Ultimately, taste is what makes a premium spirit. Our InverXion™ Vodka is distilled 8 times, and finished using vacuum inverted distillation. The results are why people keep our vodka inverted and filling glasses.

Off Color Eat Pray Mango Farmhouse Ale

Off Color Eat Pray Mango...$10.99 / 4pk 16oz cans
A robust dose of mango, passion fruit, and pear is added to our farmhouse ale and imparts overtones of a tropical riesling cocktail. The explosive fruit mouthfeel is luscious with hints of honeysuckle yet finishes silky smooth.
After digesting all the malt sugars, our usually carnivorous farmhouse ale is fed a tropical cornucopia of mango, passion fruit, and pear juices. The post-fermentation tropical feast results in the final beer retaining a huge amount of juicy aromatics that would otherwise be lost if the fruit was added any earlier in the brewing process.
Pils and Flaked Wheat malts, Azacca hops, Mango, Passion Fruit, and Pear juices

Chaeau Leoville Barton St. Julien

2018 Chaeau Leoville Barton St. Julien...$139.99
Cassis, crushed plum and steeped blackberry fruit is all packed into this wine, along with tar, violet and roasted apple wood notes, plus a terrific tug of warm earth. Shows lots of energy in reserve, with a tightly knit finish pulling everything together. Cellaring required. Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Best from 2026 through 2040.
Rated 97/100 Wine Spectator
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2018 Léoville Barton simply sings of crushed black cherries, blackcurrant cordial and wild blueberries with touches of violets, dark chocolate, allspice and cardamom with a waft of stewed tea. Full-bodied, rich and decadently fruited in the mouth, the generous fruit has a solid structure of firm, ripe, grainy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long and layered.
Rated 94+/100 Wine Advocate
The 2018 Léoville-Barton is a gorgeous, exotic wine. Crème de cassis, lavender, menthol, licorice and cloves race out of the glass. The 2018 marries the natural opulence of the year with a pretty classic sense of structure, making for one of the more compelling wines of the year. I would give this a good decade in the cellar. There is much to look forward to. I especially admire the energy and poise here.
